Enter your desired keyword for Keysearch review.
First, enter the phrase you’re looking to work around. This could be anything related to your idea for the article. The chances are a highly focused, or generic phrase will already be hard to rank for, but the search will pull up other alternatives to look through and consider.

The software will then show you a list of related keywords, their monthly search volume (if available), competition level, and CPC (cost per click). The competitors’ scores are based on the number of backlinks and other SEO factors. We’re not going to overly stress about the SEO scores, but use them as a general guide. If you pump your own domain to the domain checker, you’ll see Keysearch gives you a domain score to aim for key terms being below.
You can compare this to the SERPs overview page to see if your generic focus is worth trying to rank for.
Use the filter and sorting tabs.
The tabs at the top of the list of keywords relate to different ways you can filter the results. The first column shows all related terms, some being more specific or “long-tail” versions. Personally, we like to focus on at least 3 words in the phrase. You can use the filter for this too. These are often easier to rank for and, in general, have low competition scores.
In general, we aim for volumes over 300-400 and, for most of our sites around 34 SEO difficulty.
If you have a brand new site, try to find something below 30.
Sorting the list by monthly volume is helpful to get an idea of what people are actually searching for. You can also supplement this by going to incognito mode on Google search and typing in your potential keyword terms to see what Google auto-completes them with for ideas.
Final thoughts on Keysearch
Keep in mind that the higher the SEO difficulty and competition scores, the harder it’ll be to rank for. If you see a sea of red and oranges in the SERPs preview on the left-hand side of the Keysearch UI, it’s not going to probably be the best to focus on – particularly if your site is new.
